Founded in June 2012, Ahava Consulting is one of the first training and consultancy firms in Zambia; and now, CaseWare Africa’s new partner. Managing consultant, Nkhatya Mbewe’s vision is to be a one-stop professional support shop for accountants and auditors and ensure that they can optimise their operations to the highest quality standards.
Mbewe believes that some of the challenges that face the Zambian accounting industry involve the rate at which regulations and standards are changing and the increased demand for professional services offered. The accounting industry has proven to be key to the success of corporates as continuous changes to international standards (IFRS and ISA) have led to increased levels of service quality.
Compliance is the most crucial aspect for growth in the industry and having the correct tools to stay compliant is vital for achieving this growth. This is where Mbewe believes that having built in compliance will resolve issues that accountants face for disclosure purposes.
CaseWare brings a high level of efficiency that allows for a recovery of costs for providing services; it will also automate systems and as a result, ensure better management of activities.

Rankuke Investments (Pty) Ltd
Established by George M Kiilu, Rankuke Investments (Pty) Ltd provides accounting and consulting services, software sales and online examinations. The company’s mission is to introduce automated systems to the manual user so that auditors and accountants can save time and be efficient whilst remaining IFRS compliant. With over 20 years of working experience in both the private and public sectors, Mr Kiilu is also a member of SAIPA and Fellow of the ACCA (UK) and BICA.
Being in a relatively small economy mainly supported by government, the accounting industry which was not intensely regulated experienced shortcomings which were later resolved when the Accountants Act of 2010 was passed. Mr Kiilu strongly believes that the Acts introduction will uphold the integrity of the profession and also align it with international standards. Everyone who renders accounting services is now required to register with BICA.
Mr Kiilu also stresses that the accounting profession should be one that is dynamic and adaptive to the ever changing business environment. “The need to move to computerised platforms will definitely create efficiency and compliance but will also come up with many new challenges thereby requiring future accountants to be even more skilful”, George Kiilu.
